Commemoration of Katherine of Alexandria, Martyr, 4th century If ye keep watch over your hearts, and listen for the Voice of God and learn of Him, in one short hour ye can learn more from Him than ye could learn from Man in a thousand years.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler

Quotation of Johannes Tauler
God touches and moves, warns and desires all equally, and He wants one quite as much as another. The inequality lies in the way in which His touch, His warnings, and His gifts are received.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
If thou desirest to be safe, turn at once in thy emptiness to God. If thou hast been inconsistent, how canst thou better become consistent again than in God only? How canst thou better escape death than by the true, real Life - which is God Himself?

If you fall seventy times a day, rise seventy times and return to God so that you will not fall too often.

In prayerful silence you must look into your own heart. No one can tell you better than yourself what comes between you and God. Ask yourself. Then listen!
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
In the kingdom of heaven it is His work that will be crowned, not yours. Anything in you that He has not wrought Himself will count for nothing.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
In the most intimate, hidden and innermost ground of the soul, God is always essentially, actively, and substantially present. Here the soul possesses everything by grace which God possesses by nature.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
It is no longer the fashion to suffer for the sake of God, and to bear the Cross for Him; for the diligence and real earnestness, that perchance were found in man, have been extinguished and have grown cold; and now no one is willing any longer to suffer distress for the sake of God.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
Judge yourself; if you do that you will not be judged by God, as St. Paul says. But it must be a real sense of your own sinfulness, not an artificial humility.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
Let God and all his creation teach you what your sins are.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
Like blind hens, we are ignorant of our own self and the depths within us.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
Man must do his part and detach himself from created things.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
Never believe that true prayer consists in mere babbling, reciting so many psalms and vigils, saying your beads while you allow your thoughts to roam.

Quotation of Johannes Tauler
Rid yourself of anything that is not directed toward God.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
Show Him all the evil that is in your soul, show it to Him in a prayer which comes from your heart, pray to Him in the Spirit.

Spiritually good people, pure in heart, who long for the Blessed Sacrament but cannot receive at the time, can receive spiritually... even a hundred times a day, in sickness and in health, with immeasurable grace and profit.

Such sins, even if they do not kill all grace in us, do harm, nevertheless; and though they are only venial in themselves, they make us apt, ready, and inclined to lose grace and to fall into mortal sin.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
The gracious, eternal God permits the spirit to green and bloom and to bring forth the most marvelous fruit, surpassing anything a tongue can express and a heart conceive.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler

Quotation of Johannes Tauler
What matters most is a good and ready will to obey God.

You don't have to leave the world to be holy and grow closer to the Holy One.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
You have within you many strong and cruel enemies to overcome. You must know that there are still a thousand ties which you must break. No one can tell you what they are; only you can tell by looking at yourself and into your heart.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
You must know it in the depths of your soul, not in any violent, excited fashion but in a quiet, steady submission to God.
Quotation of Johannes Tauler
Your meditations may be as profound, as exalted, as devout as you like; you may practise every pious exercise you can manage, but all this is as nothing in comparison with the Blessed Sacrament. What we do may be godly, but this sacrament is God Himself!
